What are Ball Screw Presses?


If you are looking for a high-precision press that operates with very little friction to produce the smoothest possible motion for totally accurate replication and repeatability every time, we highly recommend that you consider a tailored ball screw press designed to undertake a range of detailed functions.

But what are ball screw presses – and what kinds are available? In this article, Cambridge Dynamics, suppliers of various servo driven ball screw press units as well as composite presses, assembly presses, punch and stamp presses and other custom press solutions, explain a little about this advanced equipment.

The Function of a Ball Screw Press

Ball screw presses are sophisticated pieces of automated fabrication equipment designed for precision forming, punching and bending operations.

These particular devices operate exceptionally smoothly thanks to the significantly reduced friction of their mechanisms. This is the result of linear motion being converted into rotational motion – then finally into translational motion – negating any sticking or juddering.

Benefits of a Ball Screw Press

The ball screw presses from Cambridge Dynamics feature an exceptionally user friendly interface developed by either Fanuc or Mitsubishi depending on customer preference, allowing for easy programming and highly accurate repeatability.

These controls are available in four different types:

  • Standard
  • Precision Load
  • Precision Position
  • Precision Load and Position

Clients are able to specify the type that will best suit their ball screw press’s chosen application.

All of our presses are designed with an infinite fatigue life on every one of their components, which means that your machine will run smoothly and accurately for many years to come.

Available types of Ball Screw Press

The ball screw presses from Cambridge Dynamics come in a range of sizes. These include 020, 030, 040, 050 and 060 frames, capable of press forces of up to 20T, 60T, 80T, 120T and 160T respectively.

The customisable nature of our range of ball screw presses enables clients to select a model and design that precisely matches the requirements of their project or processes.
